Devon is an award-winning novelist from Durham, North Carolina. She grew up in metro-Detroit in an enormous extended family and was an artist as soon as she could hold a crayon. She put together her first book–with packing tape, cardboard and wrapping paper–in her aunt’s magical bedroom full of bookshelves and a roll-top desk.

It's my favorite thing. I want to do it all life long, and I plan to. I guess this is just another way of saying that the best thing about being a writer is getting to love my job. I also love it when I am able to scoop other artistic endeavors into the writing field, like illustrating, cooking, etc. I will love it, too, if writing facilitates travel, which I hope one day it will.(less)

Book and Movie Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Image from Amazon.com, 2023

But I had liked the movie. So one knock for. I ended up staying up late to finish the book, which meant I enjoyed the read. It wasn

“He dropped the tavern apron in a heap on the floor and pulled the freshly laundered one up and over his head, tied it with slightly tremoring fingers. The vast whiteness felt like absolution.”
Devon Trevarrow Flaherty, The Night of One Hundred Thieves
tags: guilt

“You stupid cow!” He laughed at her behind those icicle eyes. “You really think anyone is better than you? Everyone’s a thief, woman! Waiting for the next terrible thing to do to get ahead of their neighbor. Forty of us around a table weren’t enough to convince you of that?”
Devon Trevarrow Flaherty, The Night of One Hundred Thieves

“The question hung unfinished between them, stretched over the desert, emblazoned like a sword that pierced through his heart, through her heart, and out like a bloodied ship mast rising on sandy waves.”
Devon Trevarrow Flaherty, Benevolent
